    Long story short.

    Don't panic. Bulba hasn't received any notices as of yet. Remain calm. More news will be forthcoming if anything happens.

    Letter looks pretty bogus to me. Especially the candid language, cease and desists are generally a bit more blunt.

    Your activity also and has the potential to cause substantial damage to Nintendo, and leaves Nintendo with no choice but to take steps to protect its intellectual property rights.
    AKA vocal minorities, you know, because they so made DP's sales worse right? Oh wait.

    Here's something System Error posted on my blog with regards to this news:

    The purpose and character of the use: Reproduction for purposes such as criticism, comment, news reporting, teaching, scholarship or research is not copyright infringement. This probably covers most blogs and personal websites, but there are other factors to consider
    I don't see what grounds they have on this claim. That and the fact that Nintendo must be aware of Wikia sites which are for-profit, and one would think they would go after them. Pretty ironic if Bulbapedia goes down and the for-profit Wikia reigns supreme due to Nintendo blunders.

    Even though Nintendo had a right to do this, they probably shouldn't have.
    I mean, it's making everyone want to buy the game.

    His servers are in the US, so his site most certainly is. The notice he received, which I've seen, make several additional statements beyond the one which WPM got (which was printed in the article), bringing up UK specific info.

    Well, if Nintendo wants the stuff down, you gotta do it.

    No use fighting Nintendo.

    Raises the question as to why they want images removed of a game that's already released, but whatever.

    I thought these messages of copyright infringement were already confirmed to be faked by 2ch trolls.

    Also I thought since the games were released it would be ok to show of information relating to the games.

    What gets me is why NOW? I mean, why not during HG/SS's release? Why not during D/P/Pt's release?
